Bottle ---> Pint glass. Clear vibrant orange with some white head and clinging lace.

Love the smell of this beer. Dank juicy floral hops combine with a musty sweetness. Some fruity citrus in there, plenty of pine...canned peaches..big malty backbone..molasses

Taste showcases more hop bitterness and citrus flavors with a deep sweetness. Pretty close to the perfect tasting IPA. Pleasant bitter aftertaste.

Tight resiny dry feel.

Definitely a go-to IPA

Enjoy By: Nov 23 2011. Just in the nick of time.

A: Pours a very nice, dark honey color with two fingers of frothy white head...beer is mostly clear. The head has some really nice staying power and leaves behind loads of sticky lacing. The film is thick with lots of large bubbles around the edges.

S: Hoppy, but balanced. Sharp, clean citrus and some pine. Malts are bready and caramel.

T: Again, the taste is hop forward, but remains balanced. Citrus(lemon and orange), pine and earthy(almost musty) hops are present. Bread and caramel backbone give way to a slightly bitter finish. There's also a spicy quality to the taste, but not sure what to attribute it to. Very nice tasting beer.

M: On the full side of medium bodied, creamy.

O: HopDevil is a very enjoyable beer and continues Victory's string of solid offerings. I'll be sure to reach for this again.
